25 Days of Hallmark Movies: Day 15: "Christmas Tail" Starring Chandra West and Antonio Cupo


Plot summary: "A single mom rescues a dog from the shelter as a gift for her son, not knowing it belongs to a girl and her single dad, so the two families are forced to share the pup."

This is essentially the story of a really bad dog owner who inexplicably lets it run away multiple times and whose only consequence for his negligence is to fall in love with some other lonely parent. Neither of them seems to *really* love the dog; it seems like a four legged plot device. It could easily have been a cat, a goat or an okapi for all they care.

25 Days of Hallmark Movies: Day 14: "The Christmas Trap" Starring Colin Lawrence and Lucia Walters

This Hallmark Lifetime Christmas movie was a gift. Because I didn't know it was only 10 minutes long before watching it. Bingo, bango, day 14 out the door:


Plot summary: "When a couple on the brink of divorce gets stuck in an elevator together on Christmas Eve, both think this will be a nightmare. But surprisingly, the Christmas music brings back memories, the gifts they have just shopped for spark a flame, and a misunderstanding from a Christmas past is resolved. As the elevator crew works overtime to rescue them, they realize where they went wrong and rekindle a love that had never really died."
